Upload videos to play in a Live event

To share videos during a Live event, upload them to your event content. Then in the Live Studio, choose how to present the videos: either launch a video as an overlay or inline (in the video player).

Tip: To avoid distortion, if you plan to share a video inline, upload a video with the same aspect ratio as the video player (16:9 for video bridge broadcasts; 4:3 or 16:9 for webcam and encoder).

You can include up to 10 videos. Each video can be up to 10 GB, must be at least 15 seconds long, and include an audio track. Supported file types include: 3GP, ASF, MOV, MKV, MPEG, MPG, MP4, F4V, WEBM, and WMV.

For more information about video requirements, see Overlay Video Specs and Requirements.

  1. Sign in to the Webcast Admin portal and edit the event.
